While all of the attention this week has been on the demise of the Dirty Bird in Hintonburg, let us not forget the other area KFC's that also closed this week, and in previous years. They kicked the proverbial 21-piece bucket, yet no wakes were held, no articles were written about their loss.
May they rest in peace. Or rather, may they rest in delicious fried finger-licking good pieces.
First, besides the Hintonburg KFC, three other local KFC's closed in the past week:
1687 Montreal Road:
917 Richmond Road:
45 Munro St., Carleton Place:
And here are some of the KFC fried chicken temples we've lost in recent years:
The Kentucky Fried Chicken at 690 Bank Street, where the last chicken was fried several years ago and was replaced by a Rogers outlet. (Anybody have a photo?)
In Bells Corners, what was once a mecca of fried chicken at 134 Robertson Road is now a great place for pad thai:
At 190 Dalhousie Street in the Byward Market, Colonel Saunders has been ousted by the Restaurant Casa do Churrasco. Did a KFC bucket once rotate on top of that pole?
Any more recently lost KFC's we should list here?
